IRS claims it can read your e-mail without a warrant

open quoteThe Internal Revenue Service doesn’t believe it needs a search warrant to read your e-mail.

Newly disclosed documents prepared by IRS lawyers say that Americans enjoy “generally no privacy” in their e-mail, Facebook chats, Twitter direct messages, and similar online communications — meaning that they can be perused without obtaining a search warrant signed by a judge.

That places the IRS at odds with a growing sentiment among many judges and legislators who believe that Americans’ e-mail messages should be protected from warrantless search and seizure. They say e-mail should be protected by the same Fourth Amendment privacy standards that require search warrants for hard drives in someone’s home, or a physical letter in a filing cabinet. close quote (Read more)

  1. The upper right hand quotes say “When fascism
    comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag
    and carrying a cross.” ~ Sinclair Lewis (American Writer)

    Rather it has been shown when elites are given
    control and believe they are godlike.

    This has been illustrated in Obama’s use of
    bureaucrats called Czars.

    The American political scene in Washington, D.C.
    under Obama is operating in the Fascist model of
    Mussolini. Do not forget that before he was Fascist
    Mussolini was Socialist and Marxist. Read the history,
    that is old books written before revisionism.

    Obama uses tragedies to gain the center of the public
    stage and promote his agenda, that is Marxism. What
    is it that his associate said, using the Alinsky method,
    ‘Never let a crisis go to waste?”

    And the media barks and howls at his direction.
    Obama is a Marxist, Fascist, all that is evil.
